Looking for the Perfect Dryer? Look No Further!

Every morning this week, I have been crossing my fingers and biting my lip while drying my hair – I can hear it – I just KNOW my blow dryer is going to bite the dust any day now. What’s a girl to do?

Hairdressers everywhere know exactly what I am talking about – you have a dryer you love, and if it dies, there should be a funeral. But what do you do? Stick with what you know and love, or look for something new, shiny, and potentially even more perfect that your dying dryer?

As much as I have been a very loyal Babyliss appliance user for 10 years, I am thinking about going in a new direction with my replacement dryer – only because I don’t think I can pass this one up! Check it out:

Ultra Smooth Professional Hair Dryer /1875 Watts by CRICKET

Why Ultra Smooth? Because it has a outlet filter INFUSED with Argan Oil and Keratin Protein! Now, I know you stylists are MUCH more talented with a brush than I am, but I can’t imagine that you would turn down any extra help you were offered! I also love that the nozzle is a bit shorter – I find dryers shaped like this are easier to handle.

I think Cricket has knocked it out of the park with this one. Check out all the other features:

Features:

  • Argan Oil & Keratin Protein infused outlet filter
  • High heat, high power professional dryer
  • Wind speeds up to 59 MPH
  • Compact & lightweight design (only 16 ounces)
  • Professional DC motor
  • 3 Heat / 2 speed settings
  • Cool shoot button
  • Concentrator attachment
  • 1875 Watts
  • 9′ Cord
What do you think? I think I will give it a whirl – who’s with me?

Treat Your Skin With Sea Salts!!

Are you offering sea salts to your clients?!! If not, take a look at all these amazing benefits they offer which will have you wondering why you waited so long!!

Bath sea salts are very high natural mineral contents, including magnesium, potassium, calcium, bromine, sodium, and chloride. These nutrients all consist of health benefits that will help promote healthy-looking, youthful skin.

Your clients will notice a difference in their skin tone:
After regular use your clients will notice their skin softer and firmer. The magnesium found in sea salt can help eliminate fluid retention, slow down aging and calm the nervous system. The grainy texture of sea salts assist in removing dull dead skin cells to reveal a fresher, newer layer of skin.

Cleaner Pores:
One of the main components of sea salts is calcium, which helps to prevent water retention and clogged pores, as well as strengthens bones and nails. The potassium in sea salts helps to energize the skin and balance skin moisture, while sodium assists in lymphatic fluid balance.

Increased Blood Circulation:
Sea salts are alkaline-based and help to de-acidify the body and help raise pH levels. This can also assist in balancing blood sugar levels and reduce the aging rate.

Muscle Relief:
The bromide found in sea salts can help relax muscles and ease muscle stiffness. Saltwater is a common treatment for muscle aches and pains, because it naturally penetrates the pores, enters into the bloodstream and tissues, and removes lactic acid accumulations, one of the roots of post-exercise pain.

Some of the internal benefits your clients will find from sea salt soaks include:
-Reducing levels of stress
-Dealing with Insomnia
-Increasing circulation
-Expelling toxins from the body

Please take a look below at some of the sea salts we sell at Pure Spa Direct:

Essential Oils – With an Emphasis on Essential!

Ah, essential oils – probably one of my favorite spa products out there! But what makes them so great? I love how each individual oil can be used for various soothing and supposedly curative effects. While essential oils are “essential” in the sole reason that they contain the “essence” of the plant’s fragrance of which they’re derived from, it is important to note that different oils have different properties. Certain oils are essential for various types of aliments! Do you have enough essentials for all types of clients, especially those who receive deep tissue massages? If not, I’ve got you covered. See below for what I mean, and why these “essential” oils take on a whole new meaning!


Most your clients probably sit throughout the day and then cram their exercise into one quick session. This can cause excess strain on their muscles, causing spasms and inflammation. While massages definitely help to ease the pain, certain essential oils can facilitate healing as well according to an article I recently read.

Reduce Inflammation

We carry any essential oil you might need here at Pure Spa Direct. However, some are more popular than others due to their aroma and abilities to aid in soothing inflamed muscles. Peppermint is great for your clients with inflamed and overheated muscles, as it has a cooling effect. Rosemary also reduces inflammation due to its astringent properties. This can help stimulate circulation and increase blood flow to the muscles, bringing down inflammation. We have a variety of peppermint and rosemary essential oils to choose from!

Warm Muscles

While peppermint has a cooling effect, other oils have a heating effect. Juniper and ginger oils tend to warm overworked muscles. They contain natural analgesics which can help to block pain – perfect for your clients who are athletes and looking for a deep tissue massage!
Relax Muscles

Did you know that April is Stress Awareness Month? It’s a good chances that your clients who are stressed out have tighter muscles. Both chamomile and lavender essential oils can help calm down your clients who are extra stressed and hold tension in their muscles. They are personally my favorite, as I love their scent.
Click here to see all of our essential oils, and stock up on what your missing to help your clients in need. They are also perfect for retailing to your clients after each session!

Ayurveda: A Beauty Regimen That’s 5,000 Years Old!

…and still applicable! Ayurveda is a nearly 5,000 year old science, and one of the earliest adopters of the mantra that “beauty comes from within.” This practice focuses on balancing the whole body to enhance beauty and even optimize energy!

The Ayurvedic approach to caring for the skin starts with knowing your dosha. There are three doshas:

Vata
This type of skin is thin, dry, fine, and extremely delicate. Their skin is dry, cold to the touch and is not smooth. They are prone to premature wrinkling, especially since they are sun worshippers and tend to be the ones with the darkest tan on the beach. Many different factors disturb vata including stress, excess activity such as aerobics or constant travel, improper diet, the season of autumn, and especially an irregular routine.

Pitta
This type of skin is susceptible to breakouts and rosacea. They have combination skin with sensitivities to various allergens, and are most sensitive to the sun. A few of the things that cause the skin get out of balance are stress, over working, excess mental activity, improper diet, hot sunny weather, and the summer season.

Kapha
This type of skin is thicker, oilier, and prone to acne. Some of the causes of a kapha imbalance consist of not enough activity or exercise, improper diet, cold winter weather, and seclusion.

Thinking about incorporating this age old principle into your spa? We have an amazing selection of Ayurvedic products to choose from! From skincare lines, to Copper Shirodhara stands, we could help you bring this new (but very old!) way of beauty into your spa! Take a look at the items we carry below:
